"I love Charlaine Harris. I feel for her now. Every book I write gets attacked by some segment of my readership. And I know what it's like to have people love you and hate you. I'll be reading Charlaine's latest Sookie Stackhouse novel with enthusiasm. I have to confess what interests me is what Charlaine does with her own characters. But I do know this kind of polarization about a book indicates the characters are truly real for the readers. And that's a wonderful thing. Comments on the article most welcome. And on Sookie and on the brilliant woman who created Sookie."
We live in a world of me-me-me-what about me, so of course the over the top CH bashers ( the ones who make the twihards look sane and of course are way too old to be so upset over a fantasy novel) are only concerned with their own fantasies not being carried out. If my life ever gets so empty that I have to go to multiple boards, twitter, Facebook fan pages and forums to gripe not for a day but daily the last weeks, then please shake me, dunk me in the Hudson River till I get a grip of reality. There are so many tragedies and inequities in the world that deserve your righteous indignation and Dead Ever After is not one of them. If you are unhappy with the ending or the book in general, sell it on Amazon, give it away, there are people that would love a free book. 
Loving True Blood in Dallas came out of her self imposed retirement just to post this
We have known for years the series would end this year and we knew Charlaine had to move her creative juices on to the next project and that’s OK. Sure it’s sad to lose our annual visits with the Bon Temps gang but it’s just time … 
I think I have ALWAYS known how the series would end, I don’t know why and if you read the blog or listened to the radio show you know I said what a thought a few times and I won’t be a spoiler it here now, but this ending always seemed right for Sookie. 
I LOVED the book, I couldn’t wait --I downloaded the eBook at midnight and dove right in. I was so glad to be with Sookie again for her last book and although the book had it's rough points there were such great flashes of Charlaine’s amazing wit and wonderful details and descriptions. 
I was so glad to be once again inside Sookie’s head ( always loved the unique first person ) wonderful wisdom, loyalty and humor.
I was thinking as I was reading this last book that after 5 years of True Blood when I read a Sookie book I never NEVER picture the actors ( all excellent ) who play the characters on the HBO TV show 
I see Sookie as Lesi Desimini always drew her on the amazing book covers and when I hear Sookie talk in my head I hear her as the amazing voice actor, Johanna Parker always voiced her in the audio books. ( if you haven’t listened to audio book you have a pleasant 13 book adventure ahead of you ! )
I think this may be the key to this over the top “ shipper’ response to the books ending and directions of the storylines in the books. You have to keep the TV series and the books separate in your mind and you have to realize there are lots of folks that don’t think the way you do and respect them as equal fans ! Most of all you should be eternally grateful to the amazing and wonderful Charlaine Harris for bring us these great characters, stories and for sharing them with us for all these years.
